Wave, a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks rises up from YSP’s historic Lower Lake, reaching over the Park’s historic Cascade Bridge. Nearby surroundings include sculptures by world-class artists Anthony Caro, Antony Gormley and Julian Opie, alongside heritage features such as the Bretton Estate’s grand mansion house.
YSP offers a completely different setting for Wave, extending the iconic artwork’s life and impact. Surrounded by 500 acres of stunning countryside and woodland, the calmness and nature of the Park offers visitors an ideal space for contemplation and reflection.
Share your stories and memories in the Boathouse. A complementary events and learning programme will accompany the installation.
